Rangers manager Steven Gerrard will “make an example” of Jordan Jones and George Edmundson after they broke Covid-19 regulations, according to Paul Robinson.

The 41-time England international, speaking exclusively to Football Insider correspondent Dylan Childs, suggested that his former teammate Gerrard will be concerned by the incident’s potential on-pitch effect.

The Light Blues duo flouted coronavirus restrictions by having a house party on Sunday night and have subsequently been suspended by the club pending investigation.

A statement from Managing Director Stewart Robertson insisted that the club would “not tolerate” the pair’s behaviour.

Neither player was included in the matchday squad that beat Kilmarnock 1-0 at Rugby Park on Sunday.

When asked by Football Insider for his thoughts on the incident, Robinson said:

“Rangers have made such a good start to the season. You do not need sidetracks like this.

“It is not like it is something new, we have been living with this for months now. We know the rules and we know the regulations. It is a blatant breach of rules.

“Steven Gerrard will not want to have to deal with anything off the field but he will deal with it and they will be dealt with in the right way. They will be made an example of, punished and rightly so.

“Steven Gerrard will want to keep things off the field as far away from matters on the field because they have started fantastically.”
